Merida Big Seven 100 is an entry-level performance mountain bike, aimed at people who are stepping up from a recreational bike or getting started into the sport.
The frame is made from hydro-formed aluminium; providing a balance of lightness, stiffness, and sturdiness. This will translate to a bike that this agile and manoeuvrable, that will climb fast and efficiently out of the saddle.
Shimano 27 speed gears provide a huge range of options to ensure you are able to finish the tricky climbs, but don’t run out of gears on a long fire road descent.
Hydraulic disc brakes are also provided courtesy of Shimano, providing consistent and powerful braking regardless of the conditions. Combined with Maxxis Ikon tyres you will feel confident and in control regardless of the riding surface.
The Merida Big Seven 100 will provide an excellent entry-point into the sport of mountain biking, and give years of entertainment out on the trail.
RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM
We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM
Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.
Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
DOWN TUBE EXIT
Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can move freely without causing any trouble whilst remaining easily accessible for servicing.
C-S POST MOUNT DISC
Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat stay for a strong and light connection whilst a chainstay post mount positions the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle for extra protection and better distribution of braking forces. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.
‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.
Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kick stand.
‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
The suspension fork and/or rear shock can be locked, either directly or via a ‘remote control’ lever on the handlebar.
